Smile Flying over Lake Mead and Grand Canyon

First time I went to the US was in 1994, as I'm scanning my old photos, I found these ones, interesting enough to be shared:

1. The small plane I took


2. Boulder city, NV


Lake Mead

3.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8.


9.


10.


Hoover Dam (if only I had a zoom )

11.


12.


13.


14.


Approaching the Grand Canyon

15.


16.


17.


18.


19.


20.


21.


22.


23.


24.


25.


26.


I hope one day I'll see it from the ground, IMO it's much more impressive.

Cool. Love the retro film scanning and I love the fractal patterns of some lakes from the air. Thanks Sandy.

Great pics!!! If you were to fly over Lake Mead right now you would see a whole lot less of the lake. It's down over 100ft from the time these were taken... stupid drought.
